I'm thinking of getting a new heavy tank! Currently in the garage, I have the IS3. I have researched the KV3, T29, and I have done a little with the VK36.O1H. I also have Churchill 1 fully maxed out. What do you think is the best heavy line? Please give your opinion. I may add a poll if I could find out how...

The Americans. The entire line is amazing

242 tanks in the garage! (Pretty sure only Crusader6 has a larger garage)

The IS-7 line seems to be very popular. I'd go for the T110E5 line, but it really depends on what you personally look for in a heavy tank.

 

American Heavies:

  • Powerful and accurate guns
  • Good gun depression
  • Strong turrets
  • Weak hull armour
  • Good side-scrapers from tier seven and up

 

Overall, I found the T110E5 line enjoyable to grind from the very outset and throughout.

I can tell that's probably a troll. Churchill-Caneveron are considered some of the worst tanks in the game. I mean, 190 alpha on a tier 8 heavy? wth, WG! At least I already have the 20pdr type A and B barrow form the Cent 7/1

really like the US line. Hull-down fortresses are fun for me to drive. The T1 heavy is decent, M6, meh, but from t7(T29) onwards, it's golden. US heavies are my most played, and certainly my most loved.

if you are a slow heavy tank, a good ROF and bad alpha is terrible. You don't have the mobillity to use that ROF. Other Heavys with better alpha will peek use peek-a-boom tactics with you, or hitpoint trade. Then u are surely to fail. Other Heavys will do 300-400 damage to you, while you only do 200 back.

Thanks, as I already have the IS3, I will be buying back the T29 for sure.

Get an ST-1 and you will learn the true meaning of being s heavy.  Nothing comes even close to it except maybe the e75

I've heard the Maus itself is great, but the line isn't.

That's why I'm doing the IS3 line, to get the BL9 and the M62 gun, then the ST1 grind will be easy.

maus is solid, whole line is good, each in its own way.

smart. m62 is my favorite russian gun above tier six.

 

think about the british line. tier eight and up are hull down dpm monsters. 215b armor is great when you use a bit of gun depression, conq and caravan both have troll but pen-able turrets.

the real highlight is the armament. top notch cannons. a joy to use.

I would recommend the American and Russian Heavy tanks. Personally i like the Americans better with there gun depression and turrets, but the Russians are very noob friendly and pack a hell of a punch

KV-1 and go on from there anywhere you want from the derp ing KV-2 to the KV-1s.   But the KV-1 feels like a medium armored bucket of bolts. At least it is better then the nightmare called T-28

just someone who has a KV-1 and wants a maus and wants to be boss

if anyone can help me be good please don't hesitate to message me
